Great location, but so so food.

The views are great, but pricey for the atmosphere. Other places in York with better food and more value.

We enjoyed our visit to foxes. We have been coming to York for years, and always wanted to try fox's. Great window seat and view of nubble lighthouse,great service and quick too. Food was average at best. York has some very tough competition when it comes to fresh seafood. Would definitely go back

We went to York Beach to visit family and with that, each time, comes the visit to Fox's Restaurant. You can park over in the lot and take pictures of one of the most photographed lighthouses around, The Nubble Lighthouse and listen to the waves crash and then head back over to the restaurant for the best lobster in the...

Dined here the last night of the season. Although the dishes we tried were flavorful, portions all around the table seemed lacking. Fried lobster appetizer was delicious. We had the lazy lobster, which was a great idea as we watched our fellow diners struggle with their whole lobsters!

Heard so much about this place so decided to go when we were visited by some friends from out of town. Were there during a terrible thunderstorm and they could have saved us all money and time if they had just closed when they started having problems with electricity and were using a small generator run out of the back...

Beautiful view...can not beat it! Service was excellent. Food was just okay...not bad but nothing wonderful. We moved to York after visiting the area so now we can see the view on any given day (still can not beat it) but don't see us going around the corner to Fox's again soon.

Stopped to eat here after viewing Nubble light. We were seated by a window where we could view the rocky coast of Maine and could continue to get a view of the lighthouse. We had an excellent meal of fish and chips which was recommended by the waitress. The fish was ocean fresh haddock and was golden fried. It was... More

The chowder was fabulous as are the staff and restaurant. We really enjoyed it here. And of course literally being next door to the Nubble Light House doesn't hurt :)

We only stopped in for a quick bite to eat. Clam chowder was good, shrimp cocktail too. Prices were a bit high. Excellent view so I guess that's what you're paying for. Waitress was very nice.
